Stamp Duty Calculator

In December 2014 significant changes in the way stamp duty is levied were made.

The system means that, in the same way as income tax, rates apply only to the part of the property price that falls within each band when it is bought.

From 4 December 2014, this means:

  • No stamp duty will be paid on the first £125,000 of a property
  • 2% will be paid on the portion up to £250,000
  • 5% is paid for the portion up to £925,000
  • 10% is paid on the portion up to £1.5m
  • 12% is paid on anything above that

Buy-to-let landlords and people buying second homes will have to pay more in stamp duty, the chancellor confirmed in the March 2016 budget. From April 2016, those in England and Wales will have to pay a 3% surcharge on each stamp duty band.

A stamp duty calculator has been created by HM Revenue and Customs which also includes the surcharge on second homes.
